Meet Kenesha Bennett, a Respite and Permanency Division Coordinator for Southern Christian. Kenesha is originally from Greenville, Mississippi and currently lives in Madison County. When Kenesha is not working with families at Southern Christian, she enjoys traveling, spending time with family and friends, trying new restaurants, mud riding and going to the racetrack.
Kenesha currently works in our Adoption Permanency Division as the Respite and Permanency Division Coordinator for the East side of the state of Mississippi. Kenesha has the pleasure of working with foster and adoptive families get a much-needed break from the daily stresses they may experience while providing care for fostered/adopted children and youth. The respite program allows parents to receive a break by licensing people to be respite care providers and connecting families to these providers, so they know their children/youth are taken care of while they are getting a break.
Kenesha’s favorite quote is, "In this world there is no force equal to the strength of a woman determined to rise" by W.E.B DuBois. Her favorite biblical quote is, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."
Kenesha is ecstatic to be here and Southern Christian is so excited to have her a part of the team!
